We're thrilled to welcome three young men onto our staff team for 2016. These three guys, Xolani, Lungelo and Nqubeko, just graduated from high school and are giving a year of their lives to volunteer in Sweetwaters with iThemba! All three of them have been impacted by iThemba programmes: from kids camps to Life Groups to Khula teens club, and they've also been involved leading small groups at Saturday Kids Club (JKC) as Kids Crew leaders. They're all excited to invest in the lives of kids and teens in Sweetwaters, while being mentored one-on-one by iThemba staff.
We thought you'd want to get to know them a little better, so here's the scoop (pictured above L-R):
NQUBEKO: Also known as Lawrence, Nqubeko has been involved with iThemba for over 10 years! He joined Syvion's Life Group in 2006, and has also been going on iThemba camps since then. He's spent more than 5 years serving on Kids Crew (our teen volunteers). His goal for this year is to develop life skills in kids and teens in Sweetwaters, and teach them about God's word. His favorite food is curry and rice, and when it comes to soccer, he's a Pirate's fan.
LUNGELO: <<updating soon!>>
XOLANI: Xolani has been involved in iThemba programmes since 2010, and last year he was fully committed to Life Groups and helping lead JKC as a Kids Crew volunteer. His goal for this year is to come up with some creative new ideas to reach kids and teens in 2016 and help them enjoy themselves. His favorite food is chicken curry and when it comes to picking a soccer team, he goes with the Chiefs.
